Are Catappa leaves the same as Indian Almond leaves?

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I use my Indian Almond leaves in my shrimp tanks. Baby RCS feed off of the bacterium that grows on dead leaf matter and these leaves have reduced my mortality rate of newly hatched shrimp dramatically. I'd think you could use these in any fresh water set up. They make the water slightly tea colored.
